|Middelburg - Holland|
|Building the City of Middelburg started in the 9th century with the Abbey, by the Norbertine Order from Ghent (Flanders), later (15th C.) completed with church and tower. Embarrassingly prosperous in the 17th and 18th century, Middelburg immediately came after Amsterdam in importance. Hundreds of prestigeous monuments remind of those days.
Feel like staying here for a couple of days?
"There's a small hotel"
"with a wishing well
and a bridal suite,
and a window's view
on an adjacent steeple,
and no sign of people
... who needs people?"
Or by Claude Thornhill's Orchestra (1965) playing
And take a real Italian espresso or ristretto at
Café Vriendschap, Markt 75
